Pima County’s commitment to environmental protection has earned the appreciation of a conservation group dedicated to preventing the decline of the migratory songbird population in North America.

Saving Birds Thru Habitat presented the Board of Supervisors at its March 7 meeting with its Award of Exceptional Merit for maintaining a thriving bird population in the metro Tucson area. The group cited the County’s ongoing effort to preserve large swaths of native vegetation under the Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan (SDCP), the County’s plan for balancing the conservation and protection of cultural and natural resource heritage with efforts to maintain an economically vigorous and fiscally responsible community. The Michigan-based organization calls the SDCP “nothing short of remarkable.”
